Q: I’m going to be flying to London to visit my boyfriend. I’m hoping to wear something comfortable (and warm) yet pulled together since I’ll be going to his flat straight from the airport, and it’ll be the first time we see each other in weeks. Any suggestions for a travel-enduring outfit?
A: Wrinkle free fabrics are going to be your best bet for your straight airport-to-flat rendezvous. And given the chilly temperatures in London, knits are going to be your friend. For a style that’s equally comfortable and warm, try a chunky knit sweaterdress over tights and knee-high boots. Top off the outfit with a 3/4 length or full length wool or cashmere coat (bonus points for bright colors or standout detailing).
But looking great after a long trip isn’t all about what you’re wearing. Remember to bring a beauty mask for the plane–it’ll make it infinitely easier to get your beauty rest on the plane. Lotion can also help to relieve any skin dryness from the exposure to the dry airplane air.
Last to-do? Before you hop in the cab to his flat, freshen up your hair and makeup in the airport bathroom. Bon voyage!
Have a great tip about how to fly in style?
